We the People of the City of Lakewood, Ohio, and our Neighbors, including many Residents of the City of Rocky River, in order to form a more perfect Dog Park which is not just for Us and our Dogs but for the greater Community, to insure domestic Tranquility, to promote the Welfare of all Residents and to secure the Benefits of off-leash Liberty for our Dogs, Do hereby affirm our Support for Lakewood Dog Park.
Further, we oppose the injunctive Relief demanded by the Plaintiffs in the Case of City of Rocky River, et al. versus City of Lakewood, Ohio, et al., now before the Court of Common Pleas in the County of Cuyahoga of the State of Ohio, preferring that the Parties thereto find an amicable solution to the exaggerated Allegations thereof, securing the Future of Lakewood Dog Park as an off-leash Facility which shall remain available for the common Benefit of the Residents and their Dogs of our collective Communities.
In Solidarity with like-minded Persons, we voluntarily add our electronic Signature hereto:
Lakewood Dog Park of Lakewood, Ohio, is a municipal off-leash facility featuring a spacious 2/3-acre fenced lot bordering the Rocky River Reservation of the Cleveland MetroParks. It has a fine gravel surface with five majestic trees providing shade in the summer. For dog safety, there are two double-gated entrances located at either end of the park.
A drinking fountain provides water for both dogs and humans (though the water is turned off during the winter months, from mid-October until May). There are five dog waste bag stations positioned around the park along with rakes and pans for owners to clean up after their dogs. There are also four dispensers of hand sanitizers around the park. Nineteen benches provide ample seating.
Visitors will find two kiosks located near the entrance gates with information regarding the dog park and local events.
In cooperation with the City of Lakewood, the dog park is maintained by the Friends of Lakewood Dog Park, a group of dedicated volunteers under the leadership of a volunteer board of directors. Throughout the year, FLDP also hosts events for dogs and speakers of interest to their owners.
